Nice easy hike. I see why it’s named this, a buzzard circled and flew directly at me 3 times at the top. It was cool to see it coming head on. I think I was chilling in his spot

Beautiful trail with rock climbing and straight up most of the time. The path is small and a true hiking experience. The view at the top is breathtaking!!!!

A great hike with good views but limited by forest branches. Execllent markings.
Some trials need some maintenance.
Still a great hike.
